The Lifeblood That Was Gansevoort Park Avenue

It just so happened that checking through Twitter tonight, Daniel plus Lauren found out that Gansevoort Park Avenue, the flesh and blood of Halloween for yours truly since 2011, had been sold to Highland Properties to become Royalton Park Avenue, back in October of this year.

At first blush, when finding out about this, it was a heart attack that one didn’t expect to take place, but honestly suspected when the rooftop nightclub had a new name during Halloween, so the suspicion went into overdrive for a time being during and after Halloween.

In totality, this year especially felt a whole lot different leading up to Halloween without having any official prior knowledge of Gansevoort Park Avenue being sold to another owner, so it’s a culmination of aspects taking place which led up to this point where Gansevoort Park Avenue got sold to another owner, with uncertainty taking place of what will become of Halloween 2018 at this establishment.

There could be a shimmer of hope, Royalton Park Avenue could live up to the standard that Gansevoort Park Avenue upheld during their run as a moniker hotel on Park Avenue, or Gansevoort Meat Packing District could offer a whole lot more when it comes to Halloween, and its late night antics.

But whatever the case may be, Daniel plus Lauren will be committed as faithfully as possible, whether it’s looking for a new home that defines Halloween, or growing accustomed to what Royalton has to offer on Park Avenue, or what Gansevoort’s got up its sleeves in the Meat Packing District,

Let’s Get To It

For most people, mornings are what they are, busy, tired, sweaty at the gym, sitting in traffic, and eating breakfast in-between, Lauren Conrad’s mornings are different, now that baby Liam James Tell arrived, Lauren today told “Today’s Morning Routine” that’s mornings are a whole new world.

It’s 6 a.m., it’s dark out, the world is just about awake at that time, and the only thing Lauren’s doing is opening her eyes to the sounds of Liam crying, getting up out of bed making a B line to the coffee maker for coffee stat, as Lauren adjust to becoming a morning person.

Lauren however didn’t become a morning person out of the blue, it took some planning, cleaning out her closet big time to make it easier on herself, and wearing easy products while doing easy things to get out of the door without slowing down.

And in the middle of saying good morning and I love you to husband, William Tell, Lauren’s favorite thing in the morning is picking up baby Liam while choosing which type of cereal to eat, though Lauren’s absolute favorite cereal dish is Kellogg’s Rice Krispies with strawberies and almond milk.

Make That Special Moment Last Forever
